Sunday Cabaret Show, Star of Kings, July 17th

So it was a hot Sunday afternoon that saw us having our G&B Cabaret show and the first thing our audience enjoyed, before the show even started, was just how glorious our air con is in the club. Kicking off the show was the hilarious Tawny Owl (aka Andy Kyte) who gave everyone a little pro tip for your sets: rather than write prompt on your hands, write them on the inside of your eyelids…just not in permanent marker! It was then over to the sex bomb himself, Hot Rod (aka Ruth Stone). Rod comes from a somewhat rural location

Write-up by guest MC Barbara Fernandez  What a zany afternoon we had at The Star of Kings yesterday! At one point my sides hurt(!) Callum Mackenzie got us off to a roaring start – if Americans can shave ‘Freedom’ onto the back of a dog, why don’t Brits proclaim ‘Cut me, I bleed baked beans!’ Next was Holly Kasselder who asks: has anyone else ever been met with the tempting proposition of being milked in a field? Continuing with the dairy theme was Flora Barker who’s sister Utterly Butterly is facing an identity crisis: she may not be dairy, but

Sunday afternoon at the Star of Kings, July 3rd

Sunday afternoon’s comedy kicked off with the glorious Rosemary Gomes whom as psychologist really does comedy so others have to sit and just listen to her for a change. It was then over to Duffy Connors whose blood type is AA before we had the history of the sausage and its ancient Greek roots thanks to Samuel Love. It was then over to the hilarious Cecily Hitchcock who reckons at the start of a relationship she gives handjobs like she’s loading a gun, but this soon wanes to the enthusiasm of a half hearted one arm bandit. We then had

Sunday June 26th, Music & Character Comedy Show, Star of Kings

Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings was G&B’s Music & Character Comedy Show. These are always a ton of fun and yesterday’s was no exception. Kicking things off we had the wonderful Richard Woolford, who loves nothing more than a bit of knee action. It was then over to Sue the Cleaner (aka Liam Harney). Su’s started dating again, not so much for the sex, though, just to keep ahead of inflation. We then had the musical fabulousness of Cecilia Delatori and a Rolling Stones tribute to Southern Rail. Moss (aka James Watkins) was next with tales from the

Sunday afternoon at The Star of Kings, June 19th

It was a fun and busy day at The Star of Kings yesterday. The afternoon began with our Everything but the Gags workshop at 12.30pm. This workshop was originally done over Zoom during lockdown, so had to be condensed to two and a half hours for our pre-show time slot. I hope everyone got some useful stuff out of it. I suspect there will be some creepy face masks in Amazon shopping baskets today (you had to be there). When the show kicked off at 3.30pm, we had a wonderfully packed room with an audience who were so wonderfully up

Sunday Afternoon, Star of Kings, June 12th

Write-up by Sunday’s MC Barbara Fernandez.  Yesterday was brilliant! Even with the sunny weather, we had comedy fans up for having a laugh in a pub basement – and what fun we had! Starting off the afternoon was Ruth Stone whose 97-year-old grandma still hopes Ruth will become an inventor…of anything! Except maybe a dusty finish. Next was Jack Short who has the perfect solution for teachers whose kids have gone feral: go and make yourself a nice cup of java. Tasha Cluskey gave us lots of laughs – and no, just cause she’s from Essex doesn’t mean she runs

Sunday afternoon, Star of Kings, May 5th

It was a busy Sunday at The Star of Kings yesterday, kicking off with G&B Writers’ Group just after midday. I think it’s fair to say the writers’ group meetings are proving a great success. Yesterdays was a really interesting one and I’m already looking forward to seeing what the acts attending come up with. After the Writers group, of course, we had the show and kicking things off there was the hilarious Emily Cairns and her sexy, sexy accordion. Emily treated us to a song dedicated to her one love, that special love that comes along once in your

It was our Sunday afternoon show at The Star of Kings yesterday and what a great afternoon it was. I’m loving these early shows. When we first launched these I wasn’t sure how they’d go, but they have been consistently busy with really fun, up for it audiences. First to the stage yesterday was the hilarious Ryan Sheehan who reminded us all that you’re as young as the bills you ignore and the bikes that you ride. Michael Cumes then gave us some of the more interesting names he had to endure during his time at school before Tine Petersen

Sunday, May 15th, Star of Kings

We had another great Sunday at The Star of Kings this evening. Kicking things off we had Callum Mackenzie whose favourite British drinking game is Me vs My Organs. Next was Andy Kyte and everything from Gandhi to stylish millinery and mobile cheese. What’s not to love. It was then over to Candace Bryan who left the US because of its guns and racism for the Uk and its free health care and its slightly less racism. After Candace we had Tom Vousden, a recovering incel who loves some Earl Grey and a bit of quiet shade…so a bit of

Sunday, May 8th, Star of Kings

Yesterday’s G&B started at 1pm with a meeting of our writers’ group, which rather than sit downstairs in the club took up residence outside in the glorious sunshine. From the occasions where I dipped in now and then, they seemed to be getting some great work done. Now with the sun making an afternoon in a dark club less of a fun prospect, I wasn’t sure how busy we’d be. Well, we were absolutely packed and had a cracker of a show. First to the mic was the hilarious Joe O’Donovan who more than anything wants to be as famous
